081 - Power and Speed - JC Beattie from ATI Performance Products

Mike, Tom, Tad, and and Fireman Jeff all in studio tonight.

It's been a few very good weeks with guest and subjects.  All of us here want to thank the guests and listeners for making this so much fun for us to do.  We will do our best to further improve, and we promise we will have T-shirts soon (Tom??  You listening??)

Tonight we have JC Beattie from ATI Performance Products.  This will be our third show with JC and we finally get to discuss automatic transmissions.  JC is always a great guest, and the ATI episodes have loads of good information.  The previous shows covered damper and converters and they are well worth a listen.  

There are loads of transmission questions, and obviously we could not address everything ATI knows in a single show.  JC highlighted the benefits of the ATI Supercase.  There is much more to this case than just buying just a new case for your trans.  Pressure, flow, and how the case affects actual performance is all discussed.  Like we said JC is always a good listen.

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

080- Power and Speed - James Karger owner of LStuner.com

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

 

It's going to be hard to follow up a show like last weeks.  Drag Week is a super cool concept, and the guy are truly interested.  Mike has said it before, "you can't have a game without rules"  Drag Week has rules and classes.  Check out the rules and classes on line, there is something for everyone.

The guys actually got a call during what we would loosely call "show prep" time.  They talked to the caller, Steve from NJ, and had him hold until after the show open.  Steve has a SRT Neon with a 2.4 and was curious about some specific engine questions. The guys did their best, but somewhat uncharted territory.  Any real time feed back from listeners on this subject is more than welcome.

Tonights guest is James Karger, Dallas freelance tuner and owner of LStune.com.  James is the real deal, and well versed in many disciplines of tuning.  He tunes everything from the restrictive Viper to the Holley EFI systems used by our guests last week.  James is even involved with a dealer optioned Fireball Camaro with 700HP and a warranty.  

James is responsible for the tuning of Jason Doisher's ride for Drag Week, as well as his own class winning LS powered Mustang.  James has loads of good info and insights into tuning and Drag Week.  Give this one a listen, and we can't wait to have him back again to get more into the technical details of tuning.

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

079 - Drag Week - Jay Meagher - Clark Rosenstengel - Jason Doisher

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Once in a while things just work out and this show is one of them.  We have a fan, Kevin, who offered to get us some guys who competed in the 2016 Drag Week event.  We took him up on his offer, and it could just not have worked out better.

Clark Rosenstengel was our first guest, and because the guys don't really follow Drag Week they really don't know anything about the guy.  Turns out he uses Bullseye Turbos and we just had Wild Bill from Bullseye on two weeks ago.  While talking to him further, we found out he won the class he was in and beat our next guest.  His 2010 Camaro runs 7.60s at a weight of 4000LBS.  It's quite a ride, and congrats on his hard fought win of his class.

Jay Meagher from RealStreet Performance called in next.  He drove Jared Holt's killer Supra and knew all about Clark and his path to winning the class. RealStreet is the real deal, and Jay will be back on for a full show at some point in the near future.  Lots to talk about with this guy.

The next guest was Jason Doisher with his STOCK, yes you read that right, STOCK 5.3 LS single turbo 84 Marquis.  Yes, STOCK and goes 8.60s while weighing 3500 LBS.  Jason has been competing in Drag Week for the past three years, and has loads of good competition info.   

All of these guys were great guests, and the show could have been three hours between them.  We look forward to having them all back again.  This one is a must listen.

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.
